Needing glass thinkness info for 90 gallon


Anyone know the thickness of the bottom glass on a 90 gallon aquarium?

Been searching google for a few minutes now but hardly any good news for my self.



Thanks for the help

5/8 inch tempered. (same thing I used for the bottom pane on my 125g)

your welcome!

oh FYI to buy a pane that size should be about $120.00 depending on local glass prices. cost more if you want them drilled because they have to drill them before tempering.

Not wanting it drilled.
I just broke the bottom glass on one of my 90's.

Glass thickness has nothing to do with the volume of the tank but rather the size of the largest price of glass. Just google/bing aquarium glass thickness calculator. But I will guess 12mm.

yes and no. glass thickness has to do with how large the pane is X how much volume is on it. because a 90 has a lot more weight than a 40 breeder but have the same footprint. yet there is about 415lbs of volume weight difference between a 40breeder and a 90 tall. and a 40 breeder has a 3/8ths tempered bottom. where the 90 has 5/8ths

That's no fun. You might find it less expensive to just get a new tank. Be sure to check prices carefully.

oh and a brass bristle brush works great for getting silicone off glass.
